    • remain calm and tell them where you are and the nature of the injury
    • remain on the line until they tell you otherwise
    • if you’re calling from an internal phone, security will be notified and respond to provide first aid until emergency services arrive
    • if you’re calling from a cell, have someone else contact on site Security who can provide first aid until emergency services arrive
